Quite a bit of activity on this last day... not that I'm going to tell anything before the deadline of course  :)

Update finished! Congratulations to...




... Mark L. Rivers, who so far keeps a 100% winning percentage ever since his official semi-retirement! ;) The full coverage, including the replay pack, is already on the site. Just adding my managerial two cents, I can only consider that having nine pipsqueaks in quiet August is a fine start. Hopefully all of you, and more, will flock to Round Two as well...

...even if it is to throw eggs at me due to the car-track combo!  ;D

Sorry I didn't race before the ending but I got back with Estefy after 4 months and I've spend every spare moment I had last week with her. I promise to race more for next track, but not next week as my birthday is coming (on 30th) and I'll be busy with preparations for the party.

Thanks for the congratulations! Well, I had thought that it would have been a more tight race... Knowing it before, I would have pushed a bit less in order to save energies for the next rounds...  :D  
Anyway, happy to be again on the tallest step of a podium, it's always a pleasure...  ;)
And let me also say that it's really great to see a so active Zak beside me! :)

Felicitaciones, Mark...!!!

Pareciera que tu retiro momentáneo, no hizo mella en tus condiciones conductivas.

I think that Zak's performance is really very good, much more than it seems seeing the final times.
Zak makes two fastest sections arriving over half race with a minimal gap (0,55 seconds), losing then only some centiseconds in the other sections. Not counting the L/R corkscrew section and the double fast chicanes section where I built my win, Zak has been always very near to my times, and I think he had more time to race, maybe my 1.21,90 shouldn't been enough...  ::)  Good to know it for next rounds! :)

Thanks for the comparison, Mark! I was unable to do the analysis but from watching the replays it becomes clear that the traits of the track amplified the gaps. Zak did a fine job indeed  :)

Too bad I missed the last days, my replay really sucked.

Battery will probably be a tighter race, so hopefully you'll be able to get some laps in this time ;)

I planned some racing this weekend, but on Saturday the baby kept me away from racing, and Sunday I had to prepare ZCT99 - maybe next week :)
